IE e30 BBK

Anyone used the e30 330mm or any of the IE big brake kits before? Im curious how much of an improvement you noticed.

Im running brembo x-drilled rotors and EBC greenstuff pads but they cannot stop the car quickly enough anymore.

I know their earlier kits were having issues with the caliper bracket snapping off but they might of gotten that issue sorted out now. You could do a 5 lug swap with E30 M3 parts. The stock M3 brakes will be a nice upgrade over the stock 325 stuff plus with it being 5 lug you will have a lot more brake and wheel upgrade options. I plan on going 5 lug in the next couple months because the parts are relatively cheep and the conversion is pretty simple to do with hand tools and some pullers.

i agree, either make your own kit with the wilwood dynalites like the kit on my scirocco or go the 5 lug route, you have a turbo car, the extra lugs would be good security

ya but thats not usually enough once you turbo or motor swap, you will notice as soon as you get the new motor in...it will still be driveable, but wont be very competitive like that lol

Not enough heat dissipation, I need upsized rotors of some sort.

My plan was/is the IE BBK with EBC Yellow Stuf 'R' pads.

Converting to the 5 lug isnt an option.. good luck finding enough complete parts to do it inexpensively. Plus the 4 lugs can handle quite a bit of torque, I know people with 400+ ft/lbs torque out of their e30s and still use 4 lugs, even long term.

That, and the IE engine management system for the e30 when it comes out later this month! -drool-

dont run that stuff up front, unless you want terrible geometry, not to mention you lose a TON of caster...which is muy bad, and your tires will rub on the rear of the wheel arch..

you can only use the rear, you have to use E30 M3 stuff up front...unless you want to do it half assed and improperly

I'm just going to use the hubs so that the brakes match. I just want the susp in the rear.

you cant just run the hubs up front, you need the proper bearings too which come only pre pressed in the housings, and the only housings that fit properly are the E30 M3
